Should your family have a mission statement?

word of month character

Creating a mission statement for our families may not have been the first thing on our mind as we just try to get through our days being sure the kids get to where they need to go and dinner is served at a reasonable hour.

Imagine however that at your place of employment that you were expected to just “do” and you did not know what the goal was, or that your goal was simply to collect a paycheck at the end of the week.  At some point you no doubt would be looking for more.  More satisfaction, more purpose, responsibility and in general an understanding of why am I doing this?

Every family to be strong enough to get through the confusing / difficult times or even to make good decisions in the good time, needs to know why they do what they do.  Knowing that greater purpose, helps our children too, to make decisions based on values and purpose.  In our 30 minute presentation we will discuss the why and how to create a family mission statement.  You will be moved to clarify the “why” your family exists and what is important to you that you would like to pass on to your children.
